Was it a Phillips head or slotted head screwdriver? I demand answers.Maybe you've seen those spots for Parents for Public Charter Schools, the ones attacking Assemblyman Ron Canestrari? According to Capitol Confidential, the star of the commercial, Sinia Vargas (shown in the mug shot to the left), was convicted in 2004 for assaulting a woman with a screwdriver. She was also arrested in 2003 for heaving a rock at a pregnant woman in Albany.

This campaign talks about doing the right thing for your kids; maybe people could start by not doing stupid sh*t in front of them, like going after people with screwdrivers. No, the Albany public schools aren't perfect, but compared to some of the parents, Albany High is Harvard.
